Most Thailand natives need soft acidic water, so may not be best for your tank.

is there any way you can get/treat water so it can be soft and acidic?

Yes, by adding peat moss, but it is better to get fish that suit your water rather than constantly battling to make your water suit your fish.

Probably (?). I'd test it to be sure. :) If you have a high pH you usually have hard water, but it's not a guarantee by any means.

The API master test kit (the one recommended by most members) can be as little as $10 online. I can't quote you for in-store, though.
